home is deep clutteredto the best of its ability it showsfantastic and definitely a Down pointadding some light staging on top ifnecessary depending on on the houseitself so I get this question asked allthe time okay number one why is it evenimportant that a homeowner who's gettingready to sell the home why is itimportant that they actually take thetime and declutter the property wellit's pretty important that the buyersees what you're selling right if theydon't see the house they just see theclutter they don't see the value in thehome and in general that's just going tobe a harder time selling and theproperty probably will last 100% agreewith that and one of the things that Ialways tell my sellers without yougetting there first is it's taking downa lot of the personal photos and thepersonal belongings that are in our homethere's nothing wrong with that but inmy in my opinion I'd love to hear yoursas well as the last thing that I wantedI don't want a home buyer focus on myclients family and kids and grandkids Iwant them focus on the property itselfwhat do you think about that yeahabsolutely and also too I want to addthat it's just when you startdecluttering the sooner the betterbecause when you actually sell the homeyou're gonna be way ahead of the game soyou're gonna have time to pack each boxdecide on what you want to take with youand what you don't want to take becausethere's stuff that you do not need to goto the next only 5% green that seguesinto the second question is let's saysomebody's watching here and they'rethinking about selling their

anywhere one of thefirst things we do is within 72 hours ofsigning the contract and the green towork with us is Johanna actually reachedit out to the seller and sets up a timewhere she can come over one on one andthe seller literally has a notepad intheir hand and about a thirty to sixtyminute consultation with Johanna shetells them exactly what to do and thenwhen that's done she comes back and makesure it's done based off theconversation they had and if Jonnadetermines that we can add some lightstaging on top to make it show or popthat much better and the showings andthe photography I mean
